*** As Iowa Caucus Vote Nears, Trump, Sanders Bet On High Turnout For An Edge
Real estate mogul Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) made a final push Monday to coax non-traditional voters to the caucuses here, even as their chief rivals suggested well-tested organizing tactics would give them the crucial margin of victory instead.
As the first nominating contest of the 2016 election approached in Iowa, Trump expressed cautious optimism and launched a harsh attack against his chief caucus rival, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).
Republican officials anticipate a record turnout given the enthusiasm surrounding Trump’s candidacy.
“You have to be a little bit nervous, and you know I like to win,” Trump said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” show on Monday morning. “This is actually my first election night. I’ve gone through many election nights, but it was always for somebody else.”
“This is a little bit different for me,” he added.
Speaking in Waterloo, Iowa, several hours later, Trump blasted Cruz as a politician indebted to special oil interests. He told voters that his chief caucus rival would without a doubt end the federal renewable fuels standard, a key issue in the state.
“I don’t want to use names but I will, okay? I’m looking at the money put up by Ted Cruz, for Ted Cruz. It’s incredible, the people there. It’s controlled. And he will destroy your ethanol business 100 percent. One hundred percent,” he said. “He’s financed by oil people and the oil people don’t want ethanol, it’s very simple. Your ethanol business, if Ted Cruz gets in, will be wiped out within six months to a year. It’s going to be gone. It’s going to be gone.”
With a massive winter storm looming for the Hawkeye State on Monday night, the campaigns in both parties have closely monitored weather conditions to estimate how voter turnout might be affected.
Front-runners and long shots alike are counting on their supporters to push them over the top in Monday evening’s caucuses, which will come just hours before a massive winter storm is expected to descend on the state.
“We’ve got such a great campaign organization. We’ve got thousands of volunteers. We knocked on 125,000 doors this weekend. There’s just so much excitement,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Today” show Monday morning. “We hope that even though it’s a tight race, a lot of the people who are committed to caucusing for me will be there and standing up for me. And I will do the same for them in the campaign and in the presidency.”
There is no question that the lack of an incumbent candidate, coupled with the unconventional style of several candidates, has sparked Iowans’ interest in the race this year. Jeff Kaufmann, who chairs the Iowa Republican Party, said his office has been receiving five to six times as many calls compared to past years.
“The phone calls at the Republican Party of Iowa headquarters are absolutely unprecedented. I mean, we’re looking at 100 an hour, literally,” he said. “Now, obviously, not all of that is tied to Donald Trump. There’s also a lot of these calls that are going to a variety of candidates.
But I think that’s a sign of the enthusiasm.”
